The Haworthia is one of the easiest succulents to care for, making it a popular houseplant. They are great plants for beginners.
The plants should be placed in a location that is bright, but protected from the sun's hottest rays. Haworthia's leaves usually turn white, yellow, or red when they receive too much sunlight. During prolonged periods of shade, the plant becomes weaker. Haworthia grow very well under artificial lights.
Although these succulents are very tolerant of underwatering, overwatering can quickly cause them to rot. Haworthias grow most vigorously during spring and fall, so water them thoroughly and then wait until the soil dries out completely before watering again.
Well-drained sandy rocky soils
In the summer, Haworthias prefer warmer temperatures, but in the winter, they prefer cool temperatures. They do best in temperatures ranging from 75 to 90 °F (24 to 32 °C).
These succulents do not need much fertilizer. Feed diluted fertilizer during the growing season for optimum growth. Do not fertilize your plants during periods of extreme heat or cold, as they will go into dormancy. Do not fertilize newly potted plants during initial year.
Summer months when temperatures are above 35°C, Haworthia Zebra will go into dormancy and is semi-dormant in early winter. Plant growth will be minimal during these times, so you should water your plants less than you usually would. Make sure their soil stays moist, but not overly moist.
These succulents are generally slow-growing and can stay int the same pot for years. To keep your plants healthy and happy repot Haworthias into fresh soil every two to three years. Many Haworthias freely offset and form clusters much larger than the individual plant. when the cluster has outgrown its pot, repot your Haworthia in spring or fall. Clean any dead or shriveled leaves, and move the plant into a larger pot with fresh soil mix only if the cluster covers the entire surfacr of the soil.
Pests and Diseases
Haworthias are generally free of most pests that attack succulents. the one exception is mealybugs which can be resolved easily by physical removal or rubbing alcohol (isopropyl alcohol) or neem oil & soap mixture or any other standard houseplant insecticides.
When soil is kept too moist, fungus gnats can be another problem which can be treated by Hydrogen peroxide solution ( 1:4) or Lemon-dish soap solution (1:2).
